MV Plugins Entry

Allows a popup help window to explain game “terms” (names, places, events, etc.) while and only while a message box (dialogue) is open. A prompt specifying what button to press to toggle help displays atop the messagebox. Data is loaded from JSON. A term is any text enclosed with “/c[4].”

  • Automatically load terms for any message box, provided terms are surrounded with “/c[4].”
  • If more than one term is present in a message, terms can be toggled between using left and right input. An index and total number of terms are also shown.
  • Displays a small message above each message box with terms.
  • Terms can be one word or multiple words!
  • Each term is displayed only once in the Term Window regardless of number of repetitions in the message box.
  • Quick, easy, and unobtrusive – let interested players learn more about the lore without blocking less interested players from moving on!
